ELB-Schliff offers global expertise in high-precision surface, profile, and creep feed grinding machines with over 70 years of experience in grinding solutions for many industries.
The millGrind series is specially developed for the requirements of machining in the turbine industry as multiple technology solution in one set-up. The modular machine system in travelling table design allows an individual configuration of the machine according to the customers' needs.
The millGrind offers automatic tool and diamond roll changing to allow machining via • Grinding, Al-oxide, CBN, and diamond grinding wheels • Drilling • Milling • Laser cladding • Measuring of the unfinished workpiece • Measuring of the machined workpiece including rework in one set-up.
This guarantees that all machined surfaces run to each other and errors are avoided by repeated re-chucking.
In addition to the machining of new blades and vanes for rework, a laser cladding device can be added. This allows the measuring, cladding, and grinding or milling of the worn areas.
For grinding with high stock removal rates, the grinding wheels can be sharpened via an overhead dressing unit and intermittent or continuous dressing. For pilot production or small lot sizes a table-mounted dressing unit with interpolated dressing via vertical and cross feed axis can be used.
